#CowesWeek - Lendy Cowes Week organisers are seeking a new regatta director to replace the departed Phil Hagen.

The job is a year-round, part-time post with responsibility to evolve the on-the-water side of the regatta, in order to build upon Cowes Week’s prominent position on the global sailing calendar.

The organisers are looking for someone who is well-known on the yachting and racing circuit, has the vision to take the racing programme forward, and can work with existing and potential entrants, class associations and organising clubs to ensure the event offers the best possible competitive experience.

“Finding the right regatta director is crucial to continue evolving the event on-the-water,” said Peter Taylor, chair of Cowes Week Ltd. “This is a great opportunity for the incoming regatta director to really make their mark at one of the world’s premier regattas.”

The new regatta director will work as part of a small executive team and also with the member clubs of Cowes Combined Clubs through the regatta’s sailing committee.

The closing date for applications is Monday 6 November with interviews set to be held during the week commencing Monday 13 November.

Anyone interested in the role should request further details by emailing [email protected]

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
